Sign the Petition to Declare a Global Warming State of Emergency and Help Prevent Mass Human, Animal and Biological Extinction within Our Lifetimes

We, the citizens of our nation and of our Earth, are endowed with certain rights, powers, and obligations, which demand we act to preserve and protect the future of humanity as well as Earth's other animal and biological life.

Based on abundant scientific evidence, we recognize that our global climate is rapidly warming and becoming increasingly unstable due to human-caused atmospheric carbon pollution from the burning of fossil fuels. We also recognize that in spite of 35 years of credible scientific warnings, global warming is still rising and is now at dangerous levels!

We have already seen global warming-aggravated weather, like record-breaking floods, hurricanes, and wildfires. We have witnessed the "worst in centuries" droughts and dust storms. We have experienced alternating unseasonably cold then warm winters, extreme storms, bomb cyclones and rain bombs where weeks or months worth of rain falls in a few hours or a few days.

With our own eyes, we see that something very abnormal is happening to the previous stability of our normal weather and seasons and that global warming connected consequences (like those just mentioned,) are becoming more frequent, more severe and are affecting larger and larger areas!

We recognize that if we do not immediately and radically reduce our global fossil fuel burning behaviors before additional global warming tipping points are crossed, the destabilization of our global climate will continue at even faster rates causing among other things, unprecedented crop failures and unthinkable mass starvation.  

Our brightest climate scientists have determined that if we do not meet the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, we will face mass human extinction where as much as 70-90% of humanity will die in as little as the next 30-50 years. Unsurprisingly, escalating global warming will not only affect humanity's survival possibilities. It also presents an equally grave and ever-increasing extinction threat to our animal and other biological species as well.

Rising global warming will soon be the 21st century's single greatest disruptor of economic, political, social and biological stability. It will also act to amplify our other largest global problems. 

If we fail to make the life-critical 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets, escalating global warming will also become all but out of our control for decades!

No one is ultimately safe from this global warming extinction emergency. Global warming consequences are already affecting millions in many areas of the world. Many individuals and businesses are already being forced to deal with escalating catastrophes, food and resource depletion, and the mass migration of desperate climagees (climate migrants.) In the not too distant future, global warming catastrophes will be affecting hundreds of millions then billions of individuals everywhere on Earth! 

We now face a world in which rising global warming can cause mass human extinction and create increasing social, economic and political chaos, not sometime near 2100, but as soon as the next few decades.

Worse yet, as our average global temperatures continue to rise, the world's six other major social, economic and political problems (see * list below) will also worsen, amplify each other and cross-react with each other and the 11 key global warming tipping points (found here.)

Our other largest global problems (other than immediate global nuclear war or nuclear  biological or biological terrorism) are:

  • Conventional war and regional conflicts*
  • Food and resource depletion*
  • Political instability and injustice*
  • Growing economic inequity, poverty, and instability*
  • Water pollution, water table loss, and other pollution*
  • Overpopulation*
  • Increasing droughts, floods, and wildfires
  • Increasing desertification and deforestation
  • Loss of biodiversity
  • Ocean fish stock depletion 
  • Rising sea levels
  • Increasing potential for pandemics and other global health crises

This will further increase the severity, frequency, and scale (size) of the above other largest global problems we all now face, making them even harder to resolve!

Despite 35 years of scientific reports as well as 21 International conferences about the near-certain extinction effects of the carbon (and methane,) pollution of our atmosphere, global warming temperatures have both continued to rise and have accelerated to levels that have passed dangerous tipping points.

There is true urgency to this global warming extinction emergency!

Our average global temperature and atmospheric carbon levels are far too close to crossing the near-extinction and final extinction tipping points. If we fail to make the 2025 reduction targets, this extinction emergency becomes a no-win game for everyone, no matter how much money or power they might have and, no matter where they might try to escape to!  

Our current global warming extinction emergency can only be resolved by immediately reducing the human-caused production of carbon and other key greenhouse gases produced directly and indirectly from the global burning of fossil fuels.

At this "it is almost already too little too late" moment in history, the necessary fossil fuel use reductions needed to save us can only be achieved by successfully meeting our last chance 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets enforced by our governments! 

Therefore, as global citizens of every nation on Earth, we demand that our national political leaders act now before it is too late to prevent mass human, animal and biological extinction within our lifetimes! 

We demand that they:

1. Meet immediately to formally declare both a national and international Global Warming Extinction Emergency. 

2. Pass enforceable and verifiable national and international laws that would successfully achieve the 2025 global fossil fuel reduction targets. And, 

3. Call for the immediate mass mobilization and allocation of ALL the necessary resources and personnel to execute ALL critical actions required to fully resolve our current global warming extinction emergency(See Part 3 of the Job One for Humanity Plan for a complete list of all critical government-driven actions needed to save the future.)

By electronically signing this petition (in the box below,) I am personally and officially notifying my national politicians of this demand to immediately meet and take all required actions described in this emergency petition in order to protect, preserve, and advance the continuing evolution of humanity and life on Earth.

Furthermore, realizing that most of the worst global warming consequences will take centuries to thousands of years to repair, which will create an unthinkable nightmare for any surviving future generations, I further pledge to continue to act to help resolve this extinction threat and emergency until it is over.

    Dave Clark believes that action must be taken to save the world from self destruction, it is job one for everyone. Most importantly this must be an individual effort that motivates persons of influence and power to act NOW!

    Eschew eschatology! This is real. I made telling everyone I met about our climate crisis so I would at least be doing something. Now I have read Clmiategedon and I am adding my voice to theirs’. However, I have been saying for decades, “When it is time to do something about it, it is too late.” I feel that this the beginning of the end.

    We have to act now before it’s too late! Please help us save the planet, this is the only planet that we have and we don’t get another. We only have one life to live and I want to be able to make something of myself and have children in the future. I want for my children to be able to have children and for their children to have children. We are the only people that can save our planet!!!!!!!
